Penn State Football Raises Big Money At Lift For Life


There was a lot of football talk at Holuba Hall Friday afternoon as the Penn State football team participated in the ninth annual Lift For Life event. The fundraiser itself, though, was a big success yet again as the group raised nearly $95,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association.

The 2011 total of money raised stood at $94,410.09 this morning and Eric Shrive ($25,020) and Mike Farrell ($10,880) were the top fundraisers according to a press release. Fans can continue to donate over at Penn State's Uplifting Athlete's donation page.

The team of Derek Day, Brian Irwin, Evan Lewis and Pat Zerbe won the team portion of the event. Kyle Baublitz, Emery Etter, Shane McGregor and Jon Rohrbaugh finished second and Jake Fagnano, J.D. Mason, Tariq Tongue, and Jamie finished third.

Since 2003, the Lift for Life event and the Penn State chapter of Uplifting Athletes have now raised nearly $600,000 total.

Hear Shrive talk about this year's event in the video below.
